Alicja Son is the owner of Themineralspa.com. Alicja started reading about health since her teen years. As a child, she always strive to save and care for everything living. Growing up on a farm as a child helped her to be more connected to nature and understand farm production processes and because her mother was always health conscious, she spent many hours debating and discussing health and the importance of nutrition. All this, compounded by her brother being Autistic, led her to change her path from legal career to health and social care. Drawn to health and social care aspects over the years, she has deepened her knowledge in the subject of health, human body, and child development. Being a prolific reader of science literature, everything related to neuroscience, biology, anatomy, nutrition, and micro elements, minerals and effects on the human body, caught her undivided attention. Over a decade she road tested many European geo-thermal spa destinations and through the review of current research she points out the growing evidence that bathing in thermal waters benefits our wellbeing. Alicja spells out the importance of micro and trace minerals on the body. Today, she is ready to share her knowledge not just with her friends and family, as she has done so over the years, but with the world. Alicja spoke at TEDx Ainley Top Women 2019 event as a special guest of Dr Cheryl Chapman who organised the event. She is also working on publishing her book, in a quest to share her knowledge with readers, so they will be able to maximize use of these spas and enjoy their lives and live more healthily. Next time they wish to choose a holiday destination, SPA, they think not only about relaxing, but also about their health and reap the benefits of the minerals which lie deep within the Earth’s crust , and are readily available in many Geothermal spa destinations of Europe and beyond. Alicja’s mindset had changed, after experiencing many setbacks in life, overcoming adversities. She looks holistically at the human body and believes “It’s never too late to take responsibility for your health, seek healthier and more fulfilling life and have fun.” 2019 TEDx Ainley Top Speaker “Minerals Rock, Inside and Out.” Alicja is ready to inform others about ways how to be healthy, free and alive.
